    More of this! If people can't follow the rules, they deserve to have their vehicles taken from them. Sell it off in auction and put it towards some good.

    Why not change the speed limit, and give every slow moving driber on newfoundland roads a wake up call, telling them to speed the hell up. I feel for the guy going excessively fast, cause everyone wants to go fast if held up by morons going slowly when they have a place they need to be. Screw speed limits, they're there to nerf the world for the iiots, why should we all be blamed for moronic driving when clearly he didn't crash his vehicle or harm anyone, warranting no kind of punishment.....?
